It doesn't get at much press as the larger cathedral 100 yards away, but it is more historic. Although the interior is rather bare and museum like, its exterior is spectacular. How did those carvings survive the years of harsh weather?

I visited the Cathedral of Saint Demetrius in Vladimir, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with a tour guide to explain the details and sketch the historic background. The site, which is magnificent with an atmosphere of deep spirituality, is well worth a visit.

Don't bother paying to see the inside, there's not much there. The carved exterior is what you want to see. Each small scene one tells a story in pictorial form.

A small cathedral that can only be admired from outside. The stone carvings on the walls make this building quite unique, with for example, many small lions to spot. Closed to the public.

The Cathedral locates near to Holy Assumption Cathedral but much smaller in size. This single-dome Cathedral is simple in outlook but still considered worthwhile to spend some time to have a look inside.
